     If you are an employee and you fall ill, your employer might pay you your full pay for a few weeks or months. By law, an employer currently must pay most employees statutory sick pay for up to 28 weeks, though this will probably be a lot less than your full earnings. After that, you would probably have to rely on state benefits. If you are self-employed, you won't have this option.

 

State benefits are not generous. You would probably see a substantial drop in your income if you were out of work for more than a few months because of illness or disability. So what can you do to insure your income ?

How does Illness Insurance Income Cover work ?

Illness Insurance Cover Insurance aims to put you back to the position you were in before you suffered a loss. But it does not allow you to make a profit out of your misfortune. So the maximum amount of income you can replace through insurance is broadly the after-tax earnings you have lost less an adjustment for State benefits you can claim. This usually translates into a maximum of, say 50% to 65% of your before-tax earnings.

If you can't work because of illness or disability, an illness insurance protection plan (also called income protection insurance, salary insurance, wage insurance, income life insurance or permanent health insurance, phi ) pays out a tax-free income.

However, some employers arrange Group Illness Insurance protection for their employees as a perk of their job, which can pay out an income after the statutory sick period. So check what you are entitled to.
